With the 31st overall pick, the Ravens picked Penn State EDGE Jason Oweh. RSR staff react to the pick here.

Electing to try to shore up the pass rush rather than solidify the OL, the Ravens went with a guy who destroyed the measurables in pre-draft activities, but oddly enough, didn’t have a single sack in 2020. With two first-round picks, perhaps EDC and Co. felt they could go with a high-ceiling player like Oweh, especially after taking a high-floor WR in Rashod Bateman at 27.

Jayson Oweh has a huge upside although he had questionable production at Penn St.  With so many other very good players sitting there, the Ravens went with a high-upside, project type player.  Can they coach him up and turn him into a stud pass rusher?  If they can, they got a steal.  If they can’t, they may be left with a big “what if” based on who else they could have drafted.

In my bold predictions for round 1 I wrote that I wanted Teven Jenkins and Jayson Oweh. Was it Meatloaf that said “one out of two ain’t bad” or something like that? Oweh is tailor-made for Wink Martindale’s defense.  Ignore the lack of sack production in 2020 because he was still very disruptive. His freaky athleticism will shine within the Ravens defensive scheme.

Oweh has the measurables for success and it seems like he’s been at the top of the Ravens’ board for a while, but his lack of production concerns me. Oweh has the potential to be a premier pass rusher, and he’s already more than capable of setting the edge against the run. He’s a physical freak who will fit well in Wink’s blitz-happy scheme. This is a risky pick, especially with Teven Jenkins still available, but in EDC we trust.
